Bags set down on a familiar precipice, returning after five years Kevin looks around his family home, “It’s like nothing has changed.” His younger sibling, Adam, is quick to point out, “They repainted – but I wouldn’t expect you to notice.” A family pushed to its breaking point: estranged siblings, unanswered calls, fading memories, and grudges set in stone. Three siblings, Kevin, Adam, and Viviane, try to come to terms with the potential loss of their parents and what that means for their fractured sense of family. In this uncertainty, is there anything that can be salvaged or have their bonds forged by blood run dry?
All That’s Left… is a three-hander between three siblings grappling with the potential death of their parents. Features a role for two men in their mid twenties, and a role for a woman in her late teens to early twenties. Complicating the situation is Kevin – a sibling who has been absent for several years due to his parent’s intolerance of his homosexual lifestyle. The action takes place in real time over about fifty minutes in their family home.
